PLEASE DO NOT MOVE BARRICADES

Newly poured concrete needs 7 days to cure. Do NOT move barricades and drive over concrete that is curing. It can damage the concrete, reduce the pavement’s life  -- causing it to crumble within months. Please be vigilant and stop people from moving barricades.

Parking: Residents may not have access to their driveway while work is being done on the section of their street. Please park away from construction and DO NOT block traffic lanes.

Trash & Recycling Collection: The night before collection day, residents should place their garbage and recycling containers near the curb, away from the barricades of construction zones for collection – which may be across the street or at the end of the cul-de-sac.

If garbage collection trucks are not able to get to your street, due to construction work, they will try to collect the next day, before construction begins in the morning. For more information, call 311.

Neighborhood Engagement: Public Works staff members have been meeting with neighborhood associations to give residents the opportunity to view work zones, meet the contractors and ask questions about work being done in their neighborhoods. For questions or concerns, you may reach the Division of Public Works by calling 311 or 427-8311.

Warning: PLEASE DO NOT move barricades placed by the contractor, in an attempt to get into your driveway or down the road. A road that "looks" dry -- but is still barricaded -- is NOT complete. It takes 7 to 14 days for proper cure of cement concrete pavement and drive approaches. If this curing time is not given, and vehicles are driven on the new road, the concrete repair will NOT last and road quality will be comprised!!!!

Oct. 10, 2014 - Thank you to all the residents who attended the Blackhawk area neighborhood meeting at Blackhawk Middle School on Wednesday!

Sept. 30, 2014 - The Division of Public Works will host a neighborhood meeting on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at 6 p.m. in the cafeteria of Blackhawk Middle School, 7200 East State Blvd. – enter thru door number #6. Representatives from the construction company and its sub-contractors, NIPSCO and the City will be present.

Sept. 29, 2014 - We want to keep you updated on the extensive concrete street, sidewalk and curb ramp improvements going on in your neighborhood. As construction began, it was discovered that several gas line connections needed to be lowered to meet State standards. NIPSCO has been working to correct these issues. Unfortunately, this issue has delayed construction on the work in your neighborhood.

As of Sept. 29, NIPSCO has completed work in the Blackhawk Lane area. This week, they will begin lowering lines near Piegan Place, Hawkechee Drive & Kebir Ct.

Sept. 18, 2014 - Garbage and recycling vehicles have been having difficulty accessing your carts, due to the construction. We need your help in making the collection process easier for everyone involved. Flyers were placed in your door alerting you of this change. We are asking for your help! If further changes are needed, we will make adjustments. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Trash & Recycling Collection during Neighborhood Construction: The night before collection day, residents should place their garbage and recycling containers near the curb, away from the barricades of construction zones for collection – which may be across the street or at the entrance of the cul-de-sac. If work is being done on your side of the street – and your street is torn up -- please move carts to the other side and place in the park strip. If the cul-de-sac is torn up -- even just on side -- it would be best to place carts at the entrance of the cul-de-sac, at the main/intersecting road.  Trucks are not able to back out of cul-de-sacs, so they won’t be able to drive into a cul-de-sac that is torn-up.

If garbage collection trucks are not able to get to your street, due to construction work, they will try to collect the next day, before construction begins in the morning -- which could be as early as 5 a.m.

 Also, to avoid confusion, please put your address on the lid of your carts with a piece of tape. For more information or updates on construction in the Blackhawk area, go to http://www.cityoffortwayne.org/blackhawk
